History

Superman: Tower of Power in 2003

On November 12, 2002, Six Flags Over Texas announced that Superman: Tower of Power would be added to the park. The new ride would be the highest S&S Worldwide drop tower in the United States, taller than Power Tower at Cedar Point.[1]

Superman: Tower of Power officially opened on March 29, 2003.[2] At a max height of 325 feet, it was the tallest ride at the park until Texas SkyScreamer opened ten years later in 2013.[3]

While several drop towers were closed on June 22, 2007 after a incident on Superman: Tower of Power at Kentucky Kingdom involved a cable severing the feet of a 13-year-old girl, the Over Texas location remained open.[4]
